    As a key member of Poly Auction, Poly Auction Hong Kong undertakes thorough academic research to select

    the very best auction lots and presents special thematic exhibitions of the highest quality. The fifth anniversary

    of Poly Auction Hong Kong‟s Autumn Auctions will be held between 30 September and 3 October 2017 at the

    Calligraphy, Fine Modern Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy, Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art, Jewels and

    Prestige Collections will be gratefully presented in respect of local and overseas collectors‟ continuous support.

    Introduction of Highlight Lots

    In this year‟s Autumn Auctions, Modern and Contemporary Art presents both Eastern and Western

    masterpieces and the different visual thinking between the two: from the West, „Untitled‟ by Jean-Michel

    Basquiat, a monumental figure in Western Contemporary Art; from the East, „24.3.59-31.12.59‟, an

    extraordinary work by Chinese-French master Zao Wou-Ki. The leading work in the Wu Guanzhong special

    auction „The Great Fall of Tanzania‟ is one of the most significant works painted by the artist in such a large

    size in the 1970s. Furthermore, the auction will introduce „Guilin‟, „Rice Paddies of Central Sichuan‟, „Mountain

    Rocks of Guilin‟, and „Beyond the Horizon‟, showing progressive journey in Wu Guanzhong‟s 30 years of

    artistic creation. Works of Lin Fengmian, Chu Teh-Chun, alongside signature works of 20th Century

    predecessors Zhang Chongren, Wang Yachen, Li Shichao, and Zhou Bichu, offering a comprehensive

    overview of the evolvement of Chinese Modern art history.

    Paintings by Zeng Fanzhi, Zhang Xiaogang and Liu Xiaodong, manifesting the great diversity of Chinese

    Contemporary art, will be shown alongside three of Yayoi Kusama‟s rarely seen signature pieces, as well as

    Modern and Contemporary Art

    other Asian contemporary artist such as Park Seo-bo, Shimamoto Shôzô, Chen Wen Hsi, and Cheong Soo

    Pieng.

    Lot 181 ZAO WOU-KI

    24.03.59-31.12.59

    Painted in 1959

    Oil on canvas

    162.3 x 99.5 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 40,000,000 - 60,000,000

    Today, as we speak of Zao Wou-Ki's successes and innovations in 20th-century art, we can perhaps refer to

    his works in the "Klee" period and the "oracle-bone inscription" period as an "external orientalization” period.

    During the first period, Zao expressed his thoughts and feelings by working Klee-like images into figurative

    compositions, and in the later "oracle-bone" period, in abstract works that featured written character motifs. But

    the most important transitional period in his career was undoubtedly his departure, after 1957, from works

    employing oracle-bone motifs. The total abstraction that followed, allowed for even more direct expression; as

    Zao Wou-Ki noted, "It was no longer necessary, like before, to paint objects or symbols within the spaces of

    my canvases; there was no need to place boundaries on my themes or my colours. I also became aware of the

    issue of spatial depth as I explored different combinations of hues." It was at this point that Zao Wou-Ki

    entered his period of "inner Easternization." His brushwork and lines gained the freedom they needed to truly

    express, on their own, all of the artist's moods and ideas; his colours and his compositional spaces, embodying

    traditional Chinese aesthetics, now more directly evoked a visual and emotional response in the viewer.

    The innovations found in „24.03.59-31.12.59‟ embody this crucial juncture between past and future in his

    career; it is a milestone in the "fusion of Eastern and Western aesthetics" that was the hallmark of this period in

    art.

    Lot 187

    JEAN-MICHEL BASQUIAT

    Untitled

    Painted in 1984

    Acrylic and oilstick on canvas

    183 x 122 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 30,000,000 - 50,000,000

    In the 1980s, Basquiat held his first solo show in a museum in New York marking the peak of his career as the

    most mythic and legendary contemporary artist. Made in the same year, his work „Untitled‟ undoubtedly

    testifies to the moment when he made diverse and mature shifts in style. The rich texture of the oil and acrylic

    and the freely wandering lines created by the oil sticks exhibit bright, bold colour applications and unruly

    strokes created with explosive force, clearly disclosing the artist‟s confidence and dash. The figure‟s facial

    expression in „Untitled‟ comes from Picasso‟s cubist construction; the emphasis on the details of the features

    and the form reveal traits of traditional masks of African cultures. Basquiat was seriously wounded after a car

    accident in his childhood; his mother gave him a book titled „Gray‟s Anatomy‟ when he was recovering in

    hospital. The experience and the anatomic pictures in the book cast a profound influence on him, which is also

    reflected in the analysis and depiction of the body in „Untitled‟. The red and blue lines seem to respectively

    represent arteries and veins. Basquiat‟s fast and sure lines also symbolize the running of blood. Though the

    diverse metaphors of signs and the appropriation of forms in „Untitled‟, the artist highlighted particulars of the

    time and cross-cultural intersections through image-writing involved with personal experience. It indeed sums

    up Basquiat‟s art in its maturity and implies his unusual legendary life filled with ups and downs.

    Wu Guanzhong

    Poly Auction Hong Kong will present a diverse range of themes in Wu‟s works, revealing an ever evolving style

    and expression method from the 1970s to 1990s. Among his variety of rich themes, many began as a direct

    sketching of scenery. He also accessed new themes by traveling across thousands of miles of mountains and

    water, effectively following an ancient legacy, which can be described as “creating a draft by searching across

    mountain peaks.” From there, the artist‟s self-confidence in his personal techniques and solid foundation can

    also be witnessed.

    Lot 177 WU GUANZHONG The Great Fall of Tanzania Painted in 1975

    Oil on canvas

    100.3 x 179.6 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 36,000,000 - 56,000,000

    „The Great Fall of Tanzania‟, dating from 1975, is one of the earliest works that marks the beginning of Wu's

    “silver-grey” period. This kind of large-scale oil is rarely seen in his early oils, the Victoria Falls depicted in it is

    one of the three greatest waterfalls of the world, and is actually a group of falls formed from five separate

    waterfalls. They fall directly down from the extremely wide and flat riverbed above, producing an enveloping

    mist and a thunderous roar. The dimensions of Wu's canvas highlight the spectacular grandeur of the falls, and

    the imposing power of his work seems to invite the viewer to step into and experience the spaces within the

    canvas. As in a scene described by poet Li Bai, in his View of Waterfall from the High Cliffs, "High above, white

    falls break the cliffs, surrounded by the Danxia landform. Spray shoots towards the dragon pool below, day and

    night are full of wind and thunder."

    It was in the 1970s that Wu Guanzhong perfected his technique of a unified tonal palette in the oil medium;

    here, he applies white pigments over the black and grey hues that appear in the rocks beside the cliffs of the

    waterfall. The colour of the quickly flowing water contrasts sharply with the weighty tones of the cliff sides. In

    „The Great Fall of Tanzania‟ we find contrasts of light and shadow and a language of form derived from

    Western painting, but also the traditional Chinese relation between form and empty space. The rich artistic

    quality of the painting represents one of Wu Guanzhong's great achievements in merging Eastern and Western

    forms of painting.

    Lot 179 WU GUANZHONG Guilin Painted in 1991

    Oil on canvas, mounted on board

    44 x 53 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 15,000,000 -

    25,000,000

  • 5

    In 1972, Wu Guanzhong and his wife travelled 
 to Guiyang to visit his mother-in-law. The scenery of Guilin

    would become an important theme for Wu Guanzhong‟s paintings. Guilin was painted in 1991. In the 1990s,

    Wu Guanzhong‟s exploration and skills in scenery painting reached a new level of harmony and maturity. This

    work gives us a glimpse into the depiction and perception of Guilin by Wu after his style underwent years of

    accumulated growth and maturity. With a mainly light green color, the picture is also paired with white, yellow,

    red, black and other changing colors. Color might seem to be scattered randomly. But, with strict and careful

    consideration, it creates a bright and vibrant rhythm to the picture, while at the same time conveying the

    staggered vitality of a humanities and natural scenery, showing the beauty of form by "alternation of regularity

    and irregularity ". In his creation, the painter deletes complex things for simplification - summing up complex

    objects and tempering them into a simple, quiet beauty. In a limited frame, it shows the infinite content to

    express beyond the visual experience of the beauty of abstract music, thus conveying the artist's

    understanding of the natural universe and inner feelings.

    Lot 178

    WU GUANZHONG Rice Paddies of Central Sichuan

    Painted in 1979

    Oil on cardboard

    25.4 x 35.3 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 4,800,000 - 6,800,000

    Yayoi Kusama

    Lot 188

    YAYOI KUSAMA Mt. FUJI (QPWE) Painted in 2005

    Acrylic on canvas

    91 x 116.7 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 7,000,000 - 8,000,000

    Lot 189

    YAYOI KUSAMA Dots & Dots (QASTOL)

    Painted in 2007

    Acrylic and enamel on canvas

    145.2 x 145.2 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 4,500,000 - 6,500,000

    Infinite dots, abstract landscape and enormous pumpkins are all important subject matters for Yayoi Kusama‟s

    to express her creative ideas and the philosophy of her practice. Kusama uses „nets‟ and „dots‟ to practice her

    illusory art of endless repetition and proliferation. In the work „Mt. Fuji (QPWE)‟, the flat surface, centralized

    composition, and the repeated use of geometric shapes represent the critical thinking of the artist at each

    stage of the painting process. „Dots & Dots (QASTOL)’ represents the infinity of eternal time and the

    absoluteness of the universe through a process of eliminating concrete boundaries by means of dots,

    incarnating the notion of “dissolving the Self; back to the natural states of the universe”.

    Lot 190 YAYOI KUSAMA Pumpkin Executed in 2011 Urethane paint on fiberglass reinforced plastic sculpture 175 x 180 x 190 cm. Estimate: HK$ 9,000,000 – 15,000,000

  • 7

    In „Pumpkin‟, Kusama‟s signature composition of black dots against a yellow background can be found. Dots drawn by hand are systematically laid out on an uneven surface following the shape of the pumpkin. The protruding facets are covered with bigger black dots with less density to enhance the three-dimensionality, whereas the hollow parts contain relatively smaller dots disposed more densely to imply a sense of „shrinking inwards‟. The size of dots enlarges and reduces gradually. The layered evolution in cycles outlines the organic shape and emphasizes the form of petals. The work symbolizes the infinite power of reproductions, which is a notion always reoccupying the artists, showing the artist‟s pursuit and persistence of art. Poly Auction Hong Kong presents three signature works of Kusama, they signify her concept of endless artistic creation. The three pieces can be seen as a transition in her engagement of form from flatness to three-dimensionality.

    Return of the Classics

    In addition, we will present works of several pioneers in the development of modern Chinese oil painting in the

    period of the Republic of China. For more than two decades, these rare paintings were preserved under a

    sealed market but with orderly publishing records. They can be seen as the epitomes of modern Chinese art of

    the 20th century, while showing influence from Western modernism. A complete form of this kind of works is

    extremely rare to survive after the war. Our “Return of the Classics” special auction includes works by masters

    such as Zhang Chongren, Zhou Bichu, Li Chaoshi, Wang Yachen, Yee Bon, Lu Shibai, Hu Shanyu, and Lin

    Dachuan. These works use traditional Chinese aesthetics as their foundation with various styles absorbed from

    different regions, redefine the magnificent history of art in the centenary progress of Chinese modern oil

    paintings.

    Lot 137 ZHANG CHONGREN Spring Herd Oil on masonite

    96.3 x 152.5 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 900,000 - 1,300,000

    Zhang Chongren is one of the most important figures in Chinese modern art. The huge scale of the „Spring Herd‟ is rarely seen in other creations by Zhang or by his contemporary artists, reflecting the artistic challenge and expectation Zhang held for himself. The densely staggered lines reflect what the artist noted, that he was affected by his “parents‟ sculptures and embroideries as a child.” This painting uses a laid-back shepherd boy as the focus to reflect the leisurely and idyllic pastoral life in Chinese landscape painting.

    The Development and Transformation of Contemporary Chinese Art

    Lot 196 ZENG FANZHI Portrait with White Coat Painted in 2002

    Oil on canvas

    120 x 60 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 2,800,000 -

    3,600,000

    Zeng Fanzhi‟s depiction of figure is highly stylized and powerful. His work often projects a tunnel into deeper thinking and the use of symbolism. The figure in the white robe in Portrait with White Coat might be Zeng‟s improvisation to emphasize the melancholic void in the work, a miniature representation of one‟s personality during the post-2000 era, when China‟s economy skyrocketed. Reviewing Zeng‟s creative life, one will discover that his earlier works contain direct and intense emotions,
 but they were later numbed as the painter accepted the social reality. Later, the painter again reassessed himself, shaping an even more realistic spiritual form. When he faces life and the experiences it brings, Zeng keeps trying to break through constraints, to challenge himself, and to create a new peak for his achievement in art.

    Lot 191 ZHANG XIAOGANG Amnesia and Memory: Notes Painted in 2003

    Oil on canvas

    120 x 150 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 2,500,000 -

    3,500,000

    In 2003, Zhang started to adopt the ways of still life painting to reinterpret „Amnesia and Memory‟ series. He replaced the portraits of figures with items such as light bulbs, flashlights, notes, beds, and TV sets. „Amnesia and Memory : Notes‟ from the same year is one of the first works from this series that inherited from the past and opened up a new era. Through depicting letters, fountain pens, and words, all items that can convey feelings, he demonstrates the pain of being apart from his family. As an extension from his previous „Bloodline: Big Family‟ series, the „Amnesia and Memory‟ series is a strikingly documentation of the artists uncanny yet shockingly tender personal emotions towards every details worth remembering in the banality of life.

    Lot 197 LIU XIAODONG

    Painted in 2011

    Oil on canvas

    149.7 x 140.2 cm.

    Estimate: HK$ 2,000,000 -

    3,000,000

    „√3‟ represents a teenager from Liu Xiaodong's hometown of Jincheng. The teenager portrayed in this painting is the product of a generation immersed in consumerism and he has found himself caught in the whirlpool of this time period. It is as though he desires to leave the small town to seek freedom and opportunity yet his fear of stress causes him to feel nostalgic for the days he spent in his hometown. In a way „√3‟ can be read as a self-portrait of Liu, even more so a visual and written portrayal of introspection. It is a prime example of Liu's exemplary commentary on adolescence in modern society.

    In the Autumn Auctions, Chinese Ceramics and Works of Art department will reveal „Pure and Solemn – an

    important private collection of Yongle Imperial Buddhist Sculpture‟ which will include 11 bronze figures

    from the Yongle period. Many of these works are the only examples left for sale and are highly anticipated in

    the category. This special selection constitutes the largest and most comprehensive presentation of bronze

    figures from the Yongle period for a decade. A gilt bronze figure of Vajrabhairava Yamantaka from the

    Yongle period will be presented.

    Renowned collector Baron Guy Ullens will once again collaborate with Poly Auction to present „The Important

    Chinese Gold from Mr. Guy Ullens Collection‟, showcasing over ten pieces of important antique Chinese

    gold wares. This collection is the last systematic collection of its kind which comes as a result of Ullens‟

    unparalleled historic collecting in the field of Chinese antiquities, making it an exciting and unique collection to

    behold.

    The Meiyintang Collection and ceramics collections from European and American collectors will showcase a

    Ru-type bronze-form footed-cup, HU. There will also be historical pieces of works of bronze, ceramics and

    jade; as well as over a hundred pieces of porcelains, lacquerware, jade and miscellaneous works from the

    Ming and Qing dynasty to provide collectors with an overview of exquisite works of Chinese ceramics and

    works of art.

    This ensemble is made up of a crown-headdress that includes a domed oval skullcap that measures 15 by 9.5cm. It is extended by two lateral strips to which are attached, by three rings, flexible lateral additions decorated with a strip. This third strip becomes bifid where it meets a rose that contains cabochons, before slotting into the carved notches in a section that forms a sort of band surrounding the base of the headdress.

    Classical Chinese Paintings and Calligraphy will present the work by Ming Dynasty painter Wang Fu, with his

    most significant and valuable ink painting „Old Trees‟. The Chinese Paintings Department will also present a

    number of important Modern masters, including Fu Baoshi‟s large-scale work „Looking Up to the Towering

    Mountain‟, Zhang Daqian‟s „Reading Inside The Cottage‟, Huang Zhou‟s „Horses Riding‟ which is

    recommended by Huang Zhou Art Foundation, „Riding Horse‟, such large scale fan piece is rarely seen in the

    last four decades, and the important works by Huang Binhong such as „Landscape in Yangshuo‟ and many

    more.

    In addition, the „Inkprovise: Contemporary Ink Art‟ sale encompasses works of the most significant masters

    from the 20th century to the present. When facing the clash of China and the West for the first time, the earlier

    pioneers, such as Wu Guanzhong and Lin Fengmian, introduced modern Western expressive methods and

    incorporated them into Chinese traditional ink art. Subsequently, artists such as He Baili Fang Zhaolin and

    other artists who resided in Hong Kong, discovered a unique artistic language combining Chinese and the

    Western aesthetics, laying the foundation for Hong Kong‟s modern art. Contemporary artists Xu Lei, Qin Ai,

    Jiang Ji‟an, and many more employ ink as the medium of their social observation. Younger artists such as Ma

    Lingli continue the experimentation of blending contemporary art with ink art. Regardless of era and region, ink

    is all along the essence of Chinese convention.
